Program Features

London and Edinburgh

Schools winning the honor to represent North America in Edinburgh as part of AHSTF enjoy an exciting journey!

Upon arrival in London, students are treated to a guided panoramic tour of London, the bustling capital city of England. During their two days in London, they enjoy a West End Theatre performance, an optional workshop at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, and free time to visit famous sites such as Big Ben, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Buckingham Palace, and more.

On the third day, groups take a scenic trip from London to Edinburgh, Scotland.  The next ten days are filled with rehearsals, performance at official AHSTF/Fringe venues, shows, workshops, an excursion to the picturesque seaside town of St. Andrews and historic Falkland Palace, the Royal Military Tattoo at Edinburgh Castle, and so much more. By the end of their stay, many students consider this beautiful, unique, and friendly city a true ‘home away from home’.
